Benefits of managed WordPress hosting in the UK.

UK WordPress hosting means faster loading sites for local visitors, better customer service, and better SEO ranking. Keeping your hosting close to your customers can give you the edge over your competition.

Faster WordPress hosting based in the UK.

Hosting your digital experiences in the cloud has countless benefits like security, increased redundancy, and high site performance. Additionally, our hosting partners, GCP and AWS, offer an impressive global footprint including data centres in the UK and Ireland. For UK and Ireland based businesses, hosting digital experiences on local data centres reduces latency by up to 82%. Gain additional peace of mind knowing you’ll be compliant with all local data transfer laws and regulations. For UK based businesses, increased site performance can be achieved through WP Engine CDNs located in the UK. Local CDNs can speed up your site load times even further by delivering static assets closer to your users.

Secure UK WordPress hosting.

Security is top of mind for WP Engine. We constantly monitor our global servers and adjust as needed so you get strong uptime and backups if any servers go down. While we block billions of security threats each year globally, we gain additional insight into security developments specific to Europe with teams on the ground in the UK. Google Cloud, one of our technology partners, offers further protection through their team of 500+ experts in information, application, and network security. Additionally, Google Cloud Platform and AWS are SOC 1 & 2 compliant and ISO 27001 certified.
